My partner and I live out of our car for work part of every summer, so our 50QT Pelican cooler serves as our refrigerator during those excursions. Having a basket to keep certain items from getting soaked inside the cooler is a must, and these baskets are fantastic: Deep enough to store what we need, but shallow enough to keep the ice level nice and high. Two of these baskets fit comfortably side-by-side in a 50QT cooler, and they easily lift out (or, if you just use one, slide side to side) for easy access to the ice and/or other provisions underneath.

Matthew, we appreciate you taking the time to share this kind review! Thank you!

I have often wished I could keep food from getting submerged in melted ice, and this is the solution. The basket is sturdy and fits well and leaves room to reach down below.

Thank you for your kind review, Tod!
